Secondary ticket giant StubHub this week announced it signed a new multi-year partnership with the University of Arizona , designating StubHub as the Preferred Secondary Ticket Marketplace of Arizona Athletics.

The Wildcats boast a devoted fan base, with prime seats to games regularly at a premium for sporting events . The partnership between StubHub and Arizona Athletics provides a team-endorsed marketplace for those seeking tickets, but also allows a safe, convenient way for fans to resell tickets to other fans for games they cannot attend.

StubHub’s unique delivery system and FanProtect™ Guarantee will be of key interest to new fans using the marketplace for the first time in the 2007 season. Both elements differentiate StubHub from other secondary ticket options. The FanProtect™ Guarantee ensures that every customer, both buyers and sellers, will receive the tickets purchased or their money back. Seven day a week customer service allows users to call in with any questions or issues they may have for immediate resolution.

The Wildcats are poised for promising football and basketball seasons; now as an official school partner those fans who may have been in the parking lot shopping for tickets will now know to buy and also sell tickets in a guaranteed marketplace catered to fans.

StubHub (a subsidiary of eBay) is the world’s largest marketplace for tickets. The Arizona partnership marks StubHub ’s fifth school partner in the Pac-10 Conference that already includes USC, Cal , Stanford and Oregon State , and the 16th overall in the NCAA. The full release is pasted below for your convenience.
